A Florida business owner who emigrated to the US from Cuba warned he sees “echoes” of communism in the Democrats lust for power during his RNC speech Monday.
“I know all about the past. I’ll never forget my own,” said Maximo Alvarez, the founder of Sunshine Gasoline Distributors, recalling how his family fled the increasingly totalitarian communist nation.
“My family has fled totalitarianism and communism more than once, first my dad from Spain and then from Cuba. But my family is done running away.”
“By the grace of God, I lived the American dream, the greatest blessing I ever had,” Alvarez stated. “I’m speaking to you today because my family is done abandoning what we rightfully earned.”
